Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. HK Rugby’s CEO Robbie McRobbie will bring you the all important (maybe slightly abridged) rugby news at 10.10. At 10.40, our weekly trip to New York to catch up with correspondent, columnist, and best selling author Tracy Quan. At 11.40 today, we’ll meet another author; Chris Maden. Set in Hong Kong in the 1960s, his latest novel “Price’s Price’ is the story of ‘the unmaking of an immaculate scoundrel’. Oh, there were plenty of those here in that decade, but what made Stanley Price so special for Chris? We’ll find out. At 12.40 today we’re Vietnam bound for our second January date with Bureau Chief-at-large Neil Runcieman. Join Neil on Facebook live, as he reports today… from the seaside. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook).
Welcome to Tuesday and our (mostly) Aussie day on Morning Brew. Jarrod Watt will be with us after 10.30 with the latest scores on the doors from Down Under, and a handful of great tracks. At 11.10 we welcome, for the first time, our New Zealand eco-correspondent. Well, nearly new, as from now on that is where Dr. Merrin Pearse will be based, having departed Hong Kong for good a week ago. After 12, we’ll go a few miles up the road to catch up with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. Now, be honest, in the cold, hard light of day, do you really, genuinely know what a NFT is? Join the club. Well, it has value, among other things you can listen to it, and many really do see it as the future. Best we leave any further explanation of this to Morris.
